Michael Whitaker set the competition alight with a time of 59.82 on a new ride, MCB Maya and looked full of confidence as they led the way from the fourteenth to go. Michael looked assured of Victory until the last to go when Cassio made up the time over the last two fences to catch the British rider. Finishing second once again after his good finish in the Global Champions Tour Grand Prix last night.

The master of faster, Richard Spooner, blitzed around the track with Billy Bianca to attack Billy Twomey’s early targets that brought the competition alight.
